. >>> thanks very much. happening now, president obama on this day he has some time to raise money in person, but only time for a phone call with israel's leader. more criticism coming in. we're also looking at the obama administration's evolving attempts to explain who's responsible for the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. is the confusion becoming a political liability? and mitt romney says he has a little secret. you're going to hear him predict he'll win a state most experts think is safely in president obama's column. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're down to just 39 days until the presidential election. in about 20 minutes the president begins a series of fundraisers right here in washington. those are the only public events on his calendar today. yet this is the same day the president didn't have time for a face-to-face meeting with the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who's in new york. instead they spoke by phone. here's cnn's white house correspondent dan lothian. dan. >> reporter: wolf, the white house always stresses that the presid
starting in october. i don't think this obama campaign are going to let it go quietly through the three debates. >> we withanks >>> good evening, americans. and welcome to "the ed show." i'm ezra klein in for ed schultz, and there is 55 days until the 2012 election. the tragic events in libya today have turned into ugly politics in america. this has genuinely been one of those 24-hour periods that could reshape not only the presidential campaign, but american foreign policy going forward. we'll have all the details. as ed would say, let's get to work. today was an incredibly important day in the u.s. presidential race. in response to the awful attacks in libya, mitt romney said something that was genuinely unbelievable. and then more amazing, he doubled down on it. this is the kind of thing, the kind of day we could look back on the 2012 campaign and say, yeah, romney just never quite managed to recover from that. here's romney and obama today. >> i think it's a -- a -- a terrible course for america, to stand in apology for our values. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned
and say, yeah, romney just never quite managed to recover from that. here's romney and obama today. >> i think it's a -- a -- a terrible course for america, to stand in apology for our values. >> there's a broader lesson to be learned here, and you know, governor romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later. and as president, one of the things i've learned is that you can't do that. it's important for you to make sure that the statements that you make are backed up by the facts and that you've thought through the ramifications before you make them. >> we will get into all of that tonight. i promise you will we will do the campaign in detail. but before we do, in an election year, presidential politics has a tendency to overshadow everything else. there's a tendency to only care about real genuinely important events in terms of their effect on the campaign. but what happened over the last 24 hours in libya and cairo needs to be understood on its own terms first, because the ramifications could be with us for quite a while, no matter who is president. and so we should start
, jill dougherty. we appreciate that. president obama has this warning for those it responsible for the murders of american diplomats in libya, justice will be done. here's the president. >> acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this it great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for. today we mourn for more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> as the story continues to unfold, we're getting in new information into what may have prompted attacks in egypt and libya and may have more to do with the anniversary of 9/11 than with a movie that insulted the muslim faith. looking at the consulate, that was after the mob attack. it was here that four americans lost their lives. you heard jill dougherty talking about how they died. among them, the u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens. this was cairo, egypt last night as a mob attacked our embassy there. they tore dow
president obama is vowing to find the killer there. the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens died tuesday night after a mob stormed the consulate in benghazi. the violence, though, spreading not only in cairo, and you can see live pictures from egypt, it's spreading in the region and to a certain degree as well. we'll stay on top of it. that's it for us, thank you very much for watching, "ac 360" starts right now. breaking news tonight. >>> good evening, everyone. american warships and u.s. marines on the move, drones airborne. and a running battle on the streets of cairo between police and protesters outside and near the u.s. embassy and at a mosque in tahrir square. these are live pictures. late new developments in the wake of the siege there yesterday and the attack on the u.s. consulate that left four americans dead, including j. christopher stevens, the ambassador to libya who's being remembered as a dedicated and talented advocate for this country overseas. it is hard to overstate the significance of what happened last night at that american consulate in benghazi. he is the first ambassad
attacked our people. >> well, later today after that news," president obama also had speech on "the cbs evening news," president obama also had sharp words for mitt romney, who's come under fire from democrats and some republicans for his statements lashing out at the obama administration's response to the attacks in benghazi and cairo. statements that whatever you believe about american foreign policy are simply not factual. we'll get to the battle over that in a moment. first we do want to focus on the attacks themselves, what happened last night and what is happening right now with the latest information we have. again, you're looking at live pictures now from cairo. breaking news both in libya and cairo to tell you about. yesterday's all-out assault on the american embassy may be over but the fighting around it continues tonight in cairo. the compound now ringed with egyptian security forces who are reportedly using tear gas and about 500 protesters gathering at a mosque in nearby tahrir square. those are the images you're seeing. we're also learning more details, pretty bizarre stu
helicopters, the apaches. >> there were also effigies of president obama burned in afghanistan today and we've seen things like that in other places like egypt. were the attacks at the base and helmand province related? >> we asked the headquarters there in afghanistan and they said right now, it's just too early to tell on this particular attack. he did say there were no organized protests outside the base proceeding the attack and i've been to that base several times. it's in the middle of nowhere. there are no large communities next to the base, but again, there have been demonstrations in afghanistan, still a little early to tell whether the video may have been a cause to spur this attack. >> thank you very much. reporting on that news from the pentagon and also, breaking news in sudan. a team of marines is now en route to the cal tall, khartoum. they are going to defend the embassy. the scene spread beyond the u.s. embassy, mobs attacked the british and german embassies and sudan was one of my countries as violence spread around the world today. the uprisings from spread from morocco t
in that part of libya than tripoli. >> previously you mentioned people from the obama administration said they felt this wasn't a planned attack, an offshoot of this video. but the director of the national counterterrorism center said at a hearing today, attack in benghazi was "a terrorist attack." he didn't specify if it was preplanned or not. it goes beyond what we've heard before. how significant is that? >> i think it's significant that the secretary of the united nations would go on our networks and tell people things that are absolutely false and fly in the face of the facts. i think maybe the american people are owed an apology. but the most important thing is that we have to understand that this video was not the cause of it. the cause of it was islamists who use these videos in order to inflame these people, in order to attack america. i mean, anderson, i'm confident right now there, are people making videos, just as a french cartoonist made cartoons, are making videos right now. we should stand up to freedom of speech and we'll defend people to speak out, rather than condemn hat
>> this is the fox report. i am harris faulkner. governor mitt romney hitting president obama hard over the biggest issue of the election. jobs. so with just 45 days until voters head to the polls, will the president meet with his job's council before november. also tonight. a terror attack that does not appear pon tanous. in the u.s. consulate in libya. a inside job leading to the fight against our ambassador and other americans. war with israel is inevitable . the top iranian commander spewing hate against our strongest ally and friend. all this as iran's madmadgets ready to speak on u.s. soil riding from sea to shining sea for those who can't. former marines on a cross country journey for those loved ones who died on the front lines. the fbi investigating whether the terror atalk on the u.s. consulate was an inside job. agents working the case and we are learning more about the september 11 attack and including 100 armed militants were involved. it was a coordinated assault and killing our former ambassador and two navy seals. >> harris, an fbi team assigned to investigate the m
in the white house with unprecedented access to president obama. we'll talk about who obama is and how he makes decisions. also, why is israel trying to get the united states to commit to waging war when israel itself isn't willing to do so. and finally we'll take a look at these pictures. do you think they were taken by nasa or the european space agency? no, a teenager with a second-hand camera. >>> but first here's my take. the images of the american embassy burning in benghazi might have conjured up memories of tehran in 1979,but the analogy is false. in libya, the government is not fomenting anti-americanism. it's lamb meanting it. the violence there appears to have been the work of small extremist elements that lack much popular support. but the storm has spread from libya. across the middle east there have been protests rallying against the united states and the west in general. even in these places, however, keep in mind that these crowds number in the hundreds, perhaps thousands. in countries with tens of millions of people. they make for vivid images be u they don't tell the whole stor
's goal in this campaign was to make it a referendum on obama. obama's goal was to make it a choice and oddly now it's become a referendum on romney. all the focus now is on romney and who he is. now, the upside for that for romney is he has an opportunity to reveal his vision, his goals, his policies in a way that we really haven't heard before because i think now he realizes and the campaign realizes that it can't just be a referendum on obama, that he now has to fill in the story, and that's got to be part of their strategy now. >> gloria, this talk about his father just doesn't feel like damage control. it seems like the latest example of something they've tried to do at the conventions to make the governor seem more relatable, like someone who isn't totally insulated fromhe problems of ordinary people. doesn't it? >> yeah. i mean, that's their real problem, and if you look at the numbers, wolf, it's kind of unsustainable for them. they have to turn this around, which is that by a three-to-one margin according to some polls, voters believe that president obama better understands
criticism of president obama's international policies. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> dramatic developments unfolding. let's begin with some important new developments in the attacks on u.s. facilities in both cairo, egypt. and benghazi, libya. u.s. sources now tell cnn the attack in benghazi was actually planned in advance and the perpetrators used a protest outside the u.s. consulate in benghazi there simply as a diversion. four americans died including the united states ambassador to libya chris stevens. our foreign affairs correspondent, jill dougherty, has been working her sources to get a better idea on exactly what happened. our senior international correspondent nic robertson is monitoring the search for who's responsible. and our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is keeping tabs on the u.s. military's response to what's going on as well. let's go to jill first. she's watching what's going on. jill, what's the latest over at the state department beyond the heartbreak of a top u.s. diplomat, three others killed? >> right, wolf. just in a few minutes we

"outfront" tonight, obama vows he'll get the killers. today the president spent 24 minutes of his half-hour speech to the united nations talking about libya, the middle east and ambassador chris stevens. the speech, which was seen by american voters and viewers around the world, mentioned stevens 12 times. as the president paid tribute to him right from the start. >> chris stevens loved his work. he took pride in the country he served, and he saw dignity in the people that he met. and two weeks ago, he
